I do love a good sketch challenge, so when I saw that Lottie Loves Paper were sponsoring the March challenge on the Stick It Down blog, I just had to have a go! I really enjoyed making this page and the sketch gave me inspiration to try something new. I’m starting to like using flowers on my layouts and becoming more comfortable with clustering and layering so went with the flow and came up with this page 🙂
There are 3 sketches to choose from and the one I chose is below.
As I don’t have many flowers in my embellishments stash I decided to make some. I used my water colour paints on 180gsm water colour paper and did brushstrokes across the pages, creating different hues by adding more water/ paint and left them to dry. I then used 3 flower stamps and stamped them randomly over the painted sheets and cut each one out. My next challenge was to place them randomly on the page and not rearrange them to be in line/ in a particular pattern, then stick them down quickly so that I couldn’t fiddle. I can tell you, my fingers were twitching like crazy! lol
Why not head over to the blog yourself and join in with the challenge? Maybe use it to push your limits and try something new?
